the majority of funding public universities receive is provided either by private donors or state/federal funding, not tuition. tuition rates (and other things like salary levels and raises) are either directly set by state legislatures or subject to approval by legislatures.

for example, at my school the operational budget for 2011 - 2012 is $900 million dollars, of which $275 million comes from tuition and fees. that's not counting the additional several hundred millions of dollars which come through outside grants and revenue projects.

to expand: in a free market tuition rates would be responsive to factors such as number of applicants, the tuition rates of other similar institutions, the economy in general, etc. - sadly that's just not the case.

If you teach at a nice school, then you have to deal with crazy parents all the time and if your numbers don't hit benchmarks you are screwed.
I'm making about half of what the consulting offers I had and working probably more hours than I would have doing consulting but at least I'm making a difference in the future of many of my kids

I'm not underestimating it in anyway, but I too was considering law school, but after working as a clerk, and in a law firm, I just don't think it's for me.

teger rails against in stitches for destroying threads

teger turns swd into a depressing soup of career advice, financial frugality, and nietzsche's role in fashion collaborations teacha.gif

you should sign off on your posts as -PhD applicant so people don't question you any more

--- or ---

i don't have to read these posts, i can skip them but no need to talk about how passé they are and how the OG career advices were better before you know who quit the game and corporatists bought it out. styleforum 2012 sup regis brad

but saying "i'm looking at schools between #9 and #14" is so arbitrary. those rankings are total bs.

i got to a top 15 ranked undergrad school and to be totally honest the teaching here is pretty subpar (which leads to the larger point of the issues w/ research universities).

that's because rankings are in no way based on the 'quality' of undergraduate teaching. it's a stupid process, but as long as people think it's important then it'll remain important.

good on you.

i'm currently debating getting a phd or not. i would absolutely love to and think it suits my personality, etc but it doesn't necessarily seem like a good career choice. it's kind of depressing watching my roommate get a job at goldman where he'll be making 6 figures in a few years and i'm looking at 10 years @ less than 50k frown.gif
